The "Detect and Repair" function would be in the help section accessed in one of the Office aps.
XP Pro does not come with MS Office, in fact, no Microsoft op system comes with any version of Office.
Office Standard Edition 2003 is $399.00, Office Professional 2003 is $499.00, and Office Small Business Edition 2003 is $449.00.
Is it possible that someone tried to install a trial version of any Office version?
There are trial versions available for the Standard Edition and the Professional Edition. I suppose it is possible that it could have come with the bundled software on a new computer.
Look in add/remove programs which you access in the control panel and see if Office is listed there, and if it is, exactly what is listed.
If this is a new computer you may need to contact the manufacturer's support and make sure you didn't pay for Office in the price of the computer.
In any case, if it is not in add/remove programs you may need their assistance to resolve the problem you are having.
If you have either a Manufacturer's Restore CD or a Windows XP CD we could help you reinstall XP or in some other way resolve the issue, but being that this is a new computer under warranty you should have the manufacturer resolve the problem.
Let us know.
